EXCELLENCE

IN BUILDING 2017 Master Builders Housing & Construction Awards


WELCOME

Master Builders are experts People often ask me: Why should I use a Master Builder? What’s in it for me?

MASTER BUILDERS AWARDS 2017 FEATURE IS PUBLISHED BY MACKAY PRINTING & PUBLISHING, LEVEL 1, 47 GORDON STREET, MACKAY, QLD 4740. MASTER BUILDERS AWARDS 2016 FEATURE IS PRINTED BY APN PRINT, 56 KENILWORTH ST, WARWICK, QUEENSLAND 4370. PUBLISHED IN SEPTEMBER 2017

MY ANSWER is always simple: Master Builders are experts in their field – they have access to up-to-date training, and industry advice and support that other contractors and their customers cannot access. Master Builders has recently made a significant investment towards connecting home owners and renovators with the right builder or tradie. This means that you can now easily find the right contractor for your building job with our new and improved online search facility. It’s as simple as typing in the job you need done and your area postcode. The search results will give you a list of Master Builders in your area who are qualified to undertake the work. So whether it’s a kitchen reno, bathroom alteration, a deck or new home build you’re looking for, eliminate the legwork or ringing around and head to www.homeofbuilding.com.au. Follow the prompts to our easy-to-use online search facility. Building with a Master Builder gives you peace of mind that your contractor is appropriately licensed and has the support of Master Builders who provide members with access to practical training, advice and up-to-date information which helps raise professional standards. Master Builders is also there to help consumers with advice and information about the building process. Value for money and a design that is tailored to accommodate your personal lifestyle factors are two major considerations for homeowners thinking of building or renovating.

Master Builders members also complete more than 80% of building work in Queensland. With these factors in mind, it’s really important to do your research, find the right builder and have a good understanding about how the building process works. Our website includes information on issues like choosing land, building your dream home, getting quotes, contracts and variations, deposits and progress payments, building approvals and inspections, the construction phase and what to do before you move in. Master Builders contracts allocate risk fairly between the builder and customer and can also assist if contractual questions arise during the building process. The information on Master Builders website will give you a more thorough understanding of the building process and help improve communication with your builder. You’ll also then know what to expect throughout the various stages of building, which can assist in reducing stress, minimise disputes, and pave the way to a smoother and happier build. Visit www.homeofbuilding.com.au to discover the many benefits of building with a trusted Master Builders member or find a Master Builders member who is available for your next project.

WELCOME to the annual 2017 Master Builders Mackay & Whitsunday Housing & Construction Awards winners’ magazine. This year is extra special because we’re celebrating 30 years of the Awards’ success and prestige. Each year the Awards continue to attract hundreds of quality entries from across Queensland and 2017 has been no exception. The range of projects reflect the high standards and exceptional skills of Mackay & Whitsunday’s Master Builders. Judges scrutinised the winners based on a stringent list of criteria such as quality of workmanship, degree of construction difficulty, external appeal, siting and aspect, and amenities and aesthetics. It is a promising sign for the building and construction industry to have so many quality winners. Each winner has put their business, product and workmanship under scrutiny as part of an extremely competitive process. This year we also welcomed three new Award categories for Diversity, the Institute of Building Consultants, and Bluescope Best Use of Steel Frame Housing. For homeowners considering a new home, renovation or addition to an existing home, there is sure to be some inspiration among these pages. For the commercial sector, these projects highlight Mackay & Whitsunday’s best commercial builders with specialist staff, contractors and consultants. Since 1882, Master Builders has been the voice of the industry, representing the interests of our members and the broader industry. We are the number-one source of practical

and relevant information to the industry and consumers. We have also helped thousands of builders and trade contractors to operate professional and profitable businesses that deliver superior quality outcomes to their customers. The outstanding craftsmanship on display as part of the Master Builders Housing & Construction Awards program points to the important role Master Builders plays in nurturing and promoting excellence within the industry and encouraging members to take pride in their work. The high standard of workmanship achieved by our members highlights Master Builders’ commitment to equipping members with specialist advice and professional services, which in turn helps members to provide unmatched workmanship and attention to detail for clients. Whether you are about to undertake a minor renovation or build your dream home, selecting a builder or trade contractor is a big decision. You can choose one of the award-winning builders featured here, or use Master Builders’ easy-to-use online search facility, www.homeofbuilding.com.au, which provides details of properly licensed contractors who match your specified criteria. On behalf of Master Builders, I thank all winners for supporting the Housing & Construction Awards program and wish them all the best.

Celebrating 30 years of awards

Landscaping

The Master Builders Housing & Construction Awards have been recognised as one of Queensland’s most prestigious and longest-running industry events since 1987 when the inaugural ceremony was held. Initially known as the Housing Awards Competition, it was expanded in 1988 to encompass the residential housing and commercial industrial fields, and became what we now know as the 6668979aa

Housing & Construction Awards. The new program was run in conjunction with the Housing and Construction Conference ’88, which was part of Brisbane’s Expo ’88 program.

Great Value Landscaping Supplies and Construction Material

It wasn’t until 1993 that entries from regional Queensland were encouraged and the first Master Builders Regional Housing & Construction Awards were launched. The Mackay & Whitsunday ceremony was much smaller than those held today, with only a handful of categories being awarded.

4952 1222 26 Connors Road, Paget

Today there are more than 50 categories under the banners of construction, housing, trade contractor/specialty and individual. Thirty years later, it is heartening to see that some of these original regional winners are still Master Builders’ members. Visit www.masterbuilders.asn.au for more information.

MASTER BUILDERS AWARDS

New awards showcase region’s building talent MASTER Builders has introduced three new categories for the Housing & Construction Awards this year for Diversity, the Institute of Building Consultants, and Bluescope Best use of Steel Frame Housing. The Diversity award recognises a company or organisation that could demonstrate positive change via initiatives aimed at promoting diversity within their business. It includes initiatives such as proactively seeking to attract and place workers in non-traditional roles (such as female carpenters); promoting and encouraging flexibility in job design and hours of work (eg; flexible work arrangements, initiatives for carers and parents telecommuting options); and sustainable employment opportunities for disadvantaged workers (eg; the long-term unemployed, indigenous, or disabled). The Institute of Building Consultants award was designed to be presented to the consultant who has demonstrated an outstanding contribution to the building and construction industry, including exemplary customer service and teamwork and leadership skills. The Best use of Steel Frame Housing award is given to a housing project built using Steel Frames. It is judged according to workmanship; degree of difficulty; value for money; street appeal; livability, design and innovation; and siting and aspect. For the full list of award winners, go to pages 38-39.

FERGUS BUILDERS

Fergus takes out four awards ONE of the most successful builders at this year’s Master Builders Awards was Fergus Builders who picked up four awards on the night. The local builder won awards for commercial building up to $5 million for its Better Pet Vets project, refurbishment over $2 million with its Dudley Denny City Library project, and individual home from $251,000 to $350,000 for a home at Erakala. But the biggest prize was project for the year for its work at Dudley Denny City Library. Construction Manager Ben Hilder said it was a special night and they were proud of the recognition for all the hard work, quality workmanship, integrity and dedication that the team, including suppliers and contractors delivered on each project. Ben said they were mindful when working on the library project that they "embraced the concept of transforming this building from what it was to the magnificent result" and all the considerations along the way. "Whether the Fergus Team is building for a family in the residential field or for a company on the

commercial or industrial side, the whole process is a real collaboration between their team, their subbies and the owners. "We know that each project is a huge investment on the client’s behalf and we strive to deliver beyond the client’s expectations each and every time. At Fergus you deal with the same person from start to finish and we know that at handover we can look you in the eye and be proud of the dealings and product delivered.” Although Fergus has been recognised mostly for its commercial projects, it carries that philosophy of building quality into its residential division. Residential manager Nathan Borg said the division has a personal touch so it’s no wonder one of its sayings is "let our family build for your family at Fergus Builders". “If you are looking for a trustworthy builder, then do your homework before you build and you will see what Fergus offer and specify upfront will be what you get plus more," he said. "We build each project as is if it were our own so it will last the test of time, we are not in the business of cutting corners or using cheaper alternatives to make a few extra dollars. "We offer one-on-one service. We spend time with the client. We take them out for half a day making selections, ensuring the price we give to the clients are exactly to what they have selected, and therefore will be no variations or hidden costs."

BARRY GREEN BUILDER

Industry has changed greatly in 40 years HAVING been in the building industry since 1970, Barry Green has not lost sight of what is important. With his wife, Cheryl, Barry has continued to bring the visions of his clients to life, giving the same level of respect whether the budget is $200,000 or $2 million. Barry said that during his time as a builder, construction methods and legislation have changed greatly. “I completed my four-year apprenticeship with well-known local firm Premier Builders and have been a licensed builder for the past 40 years, involved with construction of both residential and commercial projects,” he said. “While I have seen a lot of growth and changes in this area, I have also noticed that the styles have also continued to modify and much of what was old has become new again. It is very much like the economy, going in circles. “It’s good knowing that, throughout these changes, my name has always been the one on the door and Cheryl and I are a team,” Barry said. Clients know when they contact Barry to construct their home or renovation, they will get a builder who regularly works on site with his construction team. Barry is a member of Master Builders Housing Committee, which meets in Brisbane once a month.

ROEBUCK DESIGNER HOMES

Roebuck specialises in carpentry ROEBUCK Designer Homes is a Mackay builder specialising in new homes, renovations, commercial projects and carpentry. They formed more than eight years ago, however, Bede Roebuck has been in the building industry for more than 28 years, beginning his apprenticeship in 1989 and honing his skills under the watchful eye of his father Barry. This allowed Bede to learn all the traditional joinery skills along with modern methods of construction. The business works in both the residential and commercial sector with a reputation for old-fashioned honesty, quality and

good communication. Attention to detail is Bede’s signature with his father’s watchful eye being hereditary. Unlike many other builders, Roebuck Designer Homes has an in-house construction team with more than eight local trade carpenters and apprentices.

RUSSELL SEYMOUR BUILDERS

Builder is lifelong Mackay resident A LIFE-LONG Mackay resident has won the Individual Home $651,000 to $750,000 award. Russell Seymour of Russell Seymour Builders won the award for a four-bedroom house he built at Richmond. Russell said: "It was built to a sloping block, the house itself has steps throughout the house, so the block wasn’t cut, the house was built to suit the block. It’s very open living. "I think what impressed the judges was the finish of the house, it has a lot of curved walls in it, tiled throughout, high ceilings, vaulted ceilings in the living area, it’s very open plan with no small rooms. Russell said that he has been working in the industry since the 1970s. "I did my apprenticeship with my father, I worked on a cattle station then from ’79 to ’83, then came back and continued working for him from ’83 to ’87, then I got my builder’s number in ’87. "I do most of the work myself, I get involved in the planning of a house as well. I try to help people and get along with the client. I pride myself on getting on with people. "It’s a privilege to win the award," he said.

Bespoke company takes hands-on approach GREENE Homes Whitsunday has taken out the Master Builders Award for Best Individual Home $450,000-$550,000 as first-time entrants. The award was assessed according to the quality of the design, the use of innovation in the build and value for money. Company director Luke Greene said: “This was a really significant recognition of the integrity of our building and we hope that it will help to bring some more of those special projects our way.” Luke is the person customers meet to discuss their project and plan a build. He’s the person who oversees on-site construction and he will also strap his nail bag on and get to work on the build. He said: “This is something that sets us aside from larger building companies. The person you meet at Greene Homes is the director and the person who you will work with to design your home and he is the person who will be directly involved in the building of your home.

“Because of our exclusive level of customer service, the custom design and the very select group of tradespeople that we work with, we will only complete a handful of builds per year. “All of our products are unique because bespoke building is what we do. Bespoke meaning custom made to the client’s specifications. No two people and no two blocks of land are the same, accordingly every home we build is tailored to maximise the

potential of the block of land and to achieve the lifestyle needs of the clients. “Great homes aren’t necessarily huge mansions. Some of the best homes we’ve built have been small in size but superbly satisfying with lots of lifestyle features. “One of the advantages of custom design is that you get to build to your budget.”

6662133aa

“It is this more exclusive experience that we offer clients that we feel is key to our success in custom design building. “We are ambitious with regard to our mission statement: ‘bespoke building in the Whitsundays’. “Not only are we confident in tailoring a build to suit the client’s needs but it is the uniquely challenging building project that we aspire to.

Airlie hotel and gallery wins prestigious tourism gong BRUCE Seamer’s company has taken out the Tourism and Leisure Facilities up to $10m. Seamer Constructions won the award for the 40-room Heart Hotel and Gallery, on the main street of Airlie Beach. “It was a problem site, an old site. There had been quite a few proposals put forward before the owner got this one through. “It’s a three-storey building with the hotel reception and retail shops on the ground floor. A pharmacy, travel shop, artwork and a restaurant, The Deck. “There’s also an art gallery on the top floor. “I was stoked to win an award, it’s the first time I’ve put in for any awards. In the last three years I’ve really evolved as a builder, with the hotel.” Bruce has been in the trade for 40 years, having started as an apprentice at age 15. He moved to the Mackay area in 1992 after moving from Melbourne. “I moved into concrete formwork when I got up here, to get a bit more knowledge in the building industry. An example is in 1995 I was at Canelands carpark, doing that first suspended carpark. “I try to spend as much time on site at the jobs I do. At the Heart Hotel I was there controlling the site full-time. “It’s great to see an award for all the hard work you’ve done. We’ll see how we go in the state ones, now,” Bruce said.

We specialise in solutions for the most challenging of projects that demand design, customisation, planning, and workmanship. Our experienced team, through project management, will ensure your requirements are met on time and on budget.
